Video: Avalanche destroys a running ski lift.

An Avalanche has destroyed a ski lift while it was still running, carrying seventeen people in the ski resort of St Francois-Longchamps in the Savoie, France. All the people on the lift at the time were safely evacuate.

This just shows how dangerous it has been up on the mountains over the last week. Luckily for us the temperatures seem to be dropping over the next few days, this should stabilize the snow pack a little and there even looks like some much needed fresh snow might be arriving too.
